We had a fantastic time with Girlguiding 12th Llandudno Brownies at their RSPB Conwy Wild Sleepout, building boats & having a competition to test their stability – 10th & 11th August 2019.
Each boat had to hold a hard boiled egg and keep it dry!
They each got to test their boats once to make improvements before the competition.
Everyone enjoyed learning about the centre of mass, buoyancy, streamline boats and water resistance!

Sunday (11.08.2019) morning was competition time….
